Phil Collins’ daughter Lily speaks out about finding fame on her own
Having a famous father can be both a help and a hindrance when it comes to making a name for yourself.
The 22-year-old graced the cover of Seventeen’s March issue and talked about being part of a famous family.
The beautiful brunette told the magazine: ‘My last name may have opened doors, but I have to keep them open.’
Lily, who is appearing in the lead role alongside Julia Roberts in the upcoming adaptation of Snow White, has been making waves in the world of acting of modeling of late.
Lily embarked on her own career two decades ago with a debut role in BBC series Growing Pains at the tender age of two.
She has since starred as Sandra Bullock’s daughter in 2009 production The Blind Side and co-starred with Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner in last year’s action film Abduction.
However, sharing the screen with A-lister Roberts in Snow White will be her biggest role to date.
it is funny isn’t it that children of famous people really do think that this hasn’t helped them as much as they think. And why would they been in that world all the time so I guess you get a different perspective on life. However what Lily needs to realise is that getting the door opened is the most difficult piece and while she may be talented really this leg up is all to do with her famous dad.
